Song Cloud Community for Laravel (Images and Media)

Last Updated on

Share your music with the world

With this app you can create a community of musicians and creatives, authors can upload their songs for other members to listen.

The backend is build on top of Laravel using a REST API to send and receive data. This will allow you to easily create another client such as a native app to access the platform.

The current client is build in Angular, an SPA (Single Page Application). The final JS bundle is about 330kb when compressed using gzip, meaning the app will load fast.

There are not so many dependencies on the JS bundle, this is intentional to keep the bundle as small as possible. To build the client app you will need node and npm installed in your system. For your convenience I have included a build into the project, but you might want to create your own build with your custom configurations. Everything is well documented.
